Final two pages of a long Autograph Letter Signed to Colonel Lees saying he "will engage to paint the Portraits you specify.

Autograph Letter Signed to Sir Theodore MARTIN (1816-1909, Scottish Poet, Biographer and Translator) saying that he is "now writing out the life of James Nasmyth, Inventor of the Steam Hammer, as a sort of conclusion to my Lives of the Engineers. I am going to efface myself and write it out, from beginning to end, as an Autobiography. He has furnished me with all his notes which require a great deal of re-writing. I found in your admirable Life of the Prince Consort, a description of Nasmyths appearance at Worsley Hall ... He showed to Her Majesty and Prince Albert his Map and Drawings of the moon. I intend to quote this. But is there anything else in Her Majesty's Diary that might be given? I suspect not, as the Diary may still be private . But I thought I might mention the matter to you.
